    What have you bought for the gen4?

    Not much activity in this part of the forum.....yet!

    So what has everyone bought or planning to buy? I've had a few beers and looking at a few bits:

    GB Racing engine covers
    Evotech protection bits and tail tidy
    Carbon akra end can, full system to follow once I work out how and who to go to for a remap (any ideas?!)
    Possibly a private plate

    Anyone else?

    All part of owning a bike modding it, but why would you want to invalidate the warranty having it remapped when the things already got over 200 bhp?

    I really want to get rid of the horrible cat / box from the standard exhaust with a full system it will need a remap?
    The warranty does worry me a little though.

    First thing. This is now a sticky, thanks for starting the thread.

    Secondly, I totally agree, loose the cat and put a full system on. Its awful and weighs a ton.

    Thirdly, this is going to get expensive so I am going to wait until nearer delivery time to order because to be honest ‘er indoors isnt massively impressed with my liking for garage toys so I need to use drip feed tactics.

    If you order the system via the dealer and get them to fit it (presuming there are bmw part numbers for the full system), the warranty will remain unaffected.

    If you DIY and had a problem with the bike, bmw would have to prove the modifications you made were responsible for the fault. Apart from engine failure, unlikely.


    Subject to cost I would like to fit a full ti system.

    Edit - regarding a remap. Yes I would expect so.

    I thought there wasn't much chance of BMW doing a full system, don't they only offer the end cans? If it was BMW approved then I'd definitely go his route.
    Hmm might just get the end can to start with and then see what options are out there and how reliable the bike seems.

    When is yours arriving?
